0002246: Evaluating code and #DoIt/#DoItIn:
Evaluating code might leave a method #DoIt/#DoItIn: within the receiver class, this is not annoying for all the tools that check the presence of such a method but might also confuse beginners that don't know where this method is coming from.

Since the possibility to execute compiled methods within a receiver without actually adding them is possible in Squeak, the attached change-set makes use of the feature. This does not create a method called #DoIt/#DoItIn: and is about twice as fast as the old approach.
See the thread in the mailing-list: "What is this DoItIn: method on my class?"

For a next step we should work trough all the tools in Squeak to remove all the unnecessary checks for #DoIt/#DoItIn:

This is in 3.9, for some time already (since Traits change?)
